Solvent extraction of coal is a method to produce low molecular weight products from coal. It also can be used as a pretreatment for Direct Coal Liquefaction to enhance its efficiency. Yield, rate and nature of coal dissolution at low temperatures (25-150°C) and short contact time have been...
Surface Interaction Mechanisms between Deformable Bubbles and Hydrophobic Surfaces in Aqueous SolutionsDownload
Deformable bubbles in complex fluidic systems are crucial components in a variety of traditional and emerging industrial processes, where their surface interactions with hydrophobic surfaces play an important role in realizing the targeted functionalities. In this project, a bubble probe atomic...
Studying Structure-Nanoaggregation Relations of Polyaromatic Molecules in the Bulk Oil Phase and at the Oil-Water Interface Using Molecular Dynamics SimulationDownload
The detection, identification and characterization of early stage molecular association of polyaromatic molecules into nanoaggregates, where these nanoaggregates represent the first level of molecular clusters or building blocks are critical in areas such as design and fabrication of advanced 3-D...
There are several technical challenges in large scale heavy oil processing. In the oil sand industry, for example, the existence of water-in-oil emulsion in diluted bitumen produced from froth treatment presents a great challenge to the industry. In this work, the effect of different bitumen...
In recent years, the application of self-associating block copolymer based drug delivery systems has attracted increasing attention as nano-sized carriers for the encapsulation and the controlled delivery of water insoluble drugs. Most of the drug formulations are based on the “trial and error”...
Heat distribution measurements in Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) were concurrently measured at the cathode and anode giving increased insight and prediction capabilities. A calorimeter and water cooled cathode were used to determine energy partitions in GMAW for various electrodes, currents,...
The fluid coking process is an example of upgrading processes that use hot solids to heat and crack bitumen into more valuable products. When liquid is sprayed into a fluid bed of hot solids, the solids tend to agglomerate. The reactions in these agglomerates are subject to complex heating,...
On Integrating Element Based Heat Capacity Correlations into Process Simulation Software - Tackling Pseudo Component DefinitionDownload
In the present work, available direct and indirect methods for isobaric liquid heat capacity estimation are evaluated relative to experimental data. The study focuses on identification of systemic and random deviations between specific calculation approaches and experimental data, based on...
Two alkyl-bridged aromatic compounds, with molecular weights of 899.70 g/mol and 1127.99 g/mol, were thermally cracked with 1-hexadecene, 1- octadecene, or trans-stilbene, in a batch microreactor at 375–430 °C for 15 to 45 min. The objective of the study was to investigate the kinetics of the...
The demand for accurate bitumen-pentane mass transfer data was the main motivation behind this research. Difficulties such as complex phase behavior, high viscosity and opacity of the hydrocarbon invariably lead to failure of conventional techniques to measure mass transfer coefficients...
